As 6-time WNBA All-Star Becky Hammon continues to make basketball history – most recently by becoming the first woman to coach a team in the NBA Summer League – she’s also blazing a trail for other WNBA vets seeking an opportunity to lead from the sidelines.
And this year’s NBA Summer League in Las Vegas is proof of that. Tune in to a Toronto Raptors game, and you’ll see the first overall pick of the 2007 WNBA Draft Lindsey Harding in the coach’s huddle. And if you catch a Sacramento Kings match-up, you can’t miss Basketball Hall of Famer Nancy Lieberman right in the thick of the coaching action.
From all of us at the WNBPA, congratulations to Becky, Lindsey and Nancy on helping to break basketball barriers one coaching position at a time!
